Description Elan Ruusamäe 2009-05-19 14:33:12 UTC
Version:           3.5.10 (using 3.5.10, PLD Linux Distribution)
Compiler:          Target: x86_64-pld-linux
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release

kdelibs (at least r958029) fails with:

ftp.cc: In member function 'int Ftp::ftpOpenPASVDataConnection()':
ftp.cc:879: error: invalid conversion from 'const char*' to 'char*'
ftp.cc:881: error: invalid conversion from 'const char*' to 'char*'

and here is proposed fix:

it's due in c++  strchr returns (const char*) of passed (const char*) and returns char* if passed char*, so it seems ftpResponse returns const char*.
Comment 1 Elan Ruusamäe 2009-05-20 16:56:57 UTC
here's another one, this is patch against kdebase:

Comment 2 Eric Sandall 2009-05-30 02:13:46 UTC
The above patches fix kdelibs and kdebase compiling with GCC 4.4.0 for me.
Comment 3 David Faure 2009-05-30 02:34:28 UTC
These fixes are already applied in the KDE-4.x source code.

Note that KDE-3.x is not maintained anymore, there won't be any more releases of it. But oh well. I'll apply them if that makes you happy ;-)
